i have a p4-2a with aVIA p4x-266 mother board,512 ddr mem,40gig western dig drive and cdr. i can not get this system to run. i'm installing win98se. there is a lot of dll. problems. i can install windows alone let the system set for 24hrs and have registry problems the next boot.i'm not overclocking or anything like that just trying to find a stable combination. i have also tried a intel d845ebg2 mother board to no prevail. i have swopped mem also. please help.
I also had problems with 98se on this board. I suggest you upgrade to windows 2k, available at 9software for $75-80. You may also have a bad cd. Even the smallest scratches will cause corruption in files.
